Rune Bering

b. 1984, visual artist

I am interested in systems of meaning - technologies, communication media, and archives. I examine how these systems manifest physically in materials and conceptually in relationships between people. The digital world, nature, and our history run on such inherent structures. I try to understand social and cultural changes by uncovering how their underlying systems behave and interconnect.

My artistic practice can be described as that of an excavator and editor. Among technological developments, marketing strategies, and political agendas, I search for what things consist of, their production, and their context. I work with found systems that I stage through new materials and new forms. Focusing on objects that we deal with on a daily basis, and often do not attach much importance to, I persistently hone in on the glitches, shifts, and breaches of interpretation between subjective choices and existing protocols. By avoiding definitive conclusions or judgment, I instead seek to expose the complexity of topics that are socially relevant but often disguised as banal.
